Let us experience virtualization in Citrix XenServer


Citrix XenServer is a server virtualization platform based on the Xen hypervisor.

It enables the creation and management of virtualized server infrastructure.

Consolidation and containment of workloads on XenServer enables organizations of any vertical or size to transform their business IT compute infrastructures.

Here I have listed some of the features of XenServer

Management Capabilities - Administrators can easily manage hundreds of virtual machines from a centralized, highly available management console that installs on any Windows® desktop.

Role Based Administration - Receive immediate notification with historical reporting of VM performance to enable the rapid identification and diagnosis of fault or failure in the virtual infrastructure.

Live VM Migration - XenMotion™ eliminates the need for planned downtime by enabling active virtual machines to be moved to a new host with no application outages or downtime.

Live Storage Migration - This enables users to move a VM and its virtual disk image from a development to production environment, move between tiers of storage when a VM is limited by storage capacity, and perform maintenance and upgrades with zero downtime.

Host Failure Protection - Deliver high availability by automatically restarting virtual machines if a failure occurs at the VM, hypervisor or server level. Link aggregation bonds network interfaces for network redundancy and increased throughput.

Host Power Management - Take advantage of embedded hardware features to lower datacenter electricity consumption by dynamically consolidating VMs on fewer systems and then powering off underutilized servers as demand for services fluctuates.

Site Recovery - Provides site-to-site disaster recovery planning and services for virtual environments. Site recovery is easy to set up, fast to recover, and has the ability to frequently test to ensure disaster recovery plans remain valid.

I hope now you will be more curious to know more about XenServer.
